Scientists are eager to use CALIPSO data to study the nature of the atmosphere. Using lidar and a pair of infrared and visible imaging systems, CALIPSO promises to deliver new insights into how clouds and aerosols work to affect the atmosphere. Note: This animation illustrates how CALIPSO captures data to study the nature of the atmosphere. Animator: Susan Twardy (HTSI), Chris Meaney (HTSI). Writer: Sarah DeWitt (NASA/GSFC).

Gas Purification Process - Most of the landfill gas purification process involves removing water. This animation shows four major steps to purifying the landfill gas for Goddard. First, placed throughout the landfill purification plant, filters sift out tiny trash particles and water. Second, a compressor squeezes out more water. Third, pipes cool gas drooling out even more water. Finally, the gas is reheated and transported to Goddard. Warm gas reduces moisture. Note: This animation shows four...

Since measurements of Jakobshavn Isbrae were first taken in 1850, the glacier has gradually receded, finally coming to rest at a certain point for the past 5 decades. However, from 1997 to 2003, the glacier has begun to recede again, this time almost doubling in speed. The finding is important for many reasons. For starters, as more ice moves from glaciers on land into the ocean, it raises sea levels. Jakobshavn Isbrae is Greenland's largest outlet glacier, draining 6.5 percent of Greenland's...

Abnormal sea surface temperatures (SST) in the Pacific and the Atlantic Ocean played a strong role in the 1930s dust bowl drought. Scientists used SST data acquired from old ship records to create starting conditions for the computer models. They let the model run on its own, driven only by the observed monthly global sea surface temperatures. The model was able to reconstruct the Dust Bowl drought quite closely, providing strong evidence that the Great Plains dry spell originated with abnormal...

This visualization shows the locations of the ARGO buoy array over time. When the buoys are above water, the lines are brighter; when the buoys are under water, the lines are fainter. The ARGO buoys measure ocean salinity, column temperature, and current velocities. This version of the visualization uses a slow camera move. Note: Animation showing locations of the ARGO buoy array.

The Earth's climate is determined by energy transfer from the sun to the Earth's land, oceans, and atmosphere. As the Earth rotates, the sun lights up only part of the Earth at a time, and some of that incoming solar energy is reflected and some is absorbed, depending on type of area it lights. The amount of reflection and absorption is critical to the climate. An instrument named CERES orbits the Earth every 99 minutes and measures the reflected solar energy. This animation shows the incoming...

The only acoustic signal from these drops is a weak impact sound as it hits the ocean surface.
